Bombay Shaving Company announces R Ashwin as brand ambassador

The brand has launched an omnichannel campaign called 'Shave to Shine'.

New Delhi: Personal care brand Bombay Shaving Company has announced its association with Indian cricketer R Ashwin as its ambassador. The brand has launched an omnichannel campaign called 'Shave to Shine' featuring the cricketer in a completely new avatar.

With the festive season coming up in a few months, starting with Rakhi, the brand intends to capture the gifting market with innovative shaving and gifting solutions, it said in a statement.

The campaign is co-developed with The Collective Artist Network and produced by Cutting Crew Films.

Bombay Shaving Company's VP-marketing, Samriddh Dasgupta said, “Our research indicates that men feel better prepared to take on the day after a great shave. We are all amazing in our own lives, and a good brings out that confidence in us. We have attempted to capture the intelligence, wit, and panache of Ashwin in this very high-style high-impact film. We wanted the viewer to see Ashwin in a completely new avatar – not just as a cricketer, but as the suave R Ashwin off-the-field. As a challenger brand, we invest in disruptive, visually delightful, social media-friendly, and relevant storytelling. The campaign will be taken across products, digital media, retail branding, and influencers.”

Speaking on the association, R Ashwin shared, “I am delighted to support and co-create solutions with Bombay Shaving Company. Shantanu and the team have built an iconic brand that delivers an exemplary experience of grooming through the superior quality of their products. I have used all their hair removal solutions and find them to be thoughtful, consciously created, and specially crafted for Indian men’s skin. I spend a lot of my time on the field and need products that are gentle, effective, and high-quality. I have found that in Bombay Shaving Company. I am superbly excited with what the future holds for the brand, and wish them the best.”

The brand has also launched its flagship silver metal razor in two exciting new colors and material changes. Both the razors are signed by R Ashwin and available on the brand website, as well as on Amazon, Flipkart, Nykaa, Cred, and across many retail outlets.
